Here’s a compilation of some amazing photographs from in, of and around Hurricane Dorian. (The above photo is of Hurricane Florence last year, as we do not have the rights to self-publish any photos of Dorian as of yet).
I find it amazing there are people who actually SIGN UP to fly into hurricanes…on purpose. Thanks to those people, forecasters are given data that adds to their understanding of the storm and their predictions of how it will act. Just amazing stuff.

A minute and a half of our 7.5 hour mission yesterday. Here we are surfing the cloud tops at 45,000 feet near the eye of Hurricane #Dorian. It's no eyewall penetration, but still a sight to behold. #NOAA49#FlyNOAA pic.twitter.com/BdNXCBt1fH
